Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery Reviews

Page 1 of 4
Joe Baltake
Sacramento Bee

Its plot notwithstanding, it has nothing to do with Bond -- and it misrepresents the poor '60s as well.

Uneven and often not funny, relying on recycled jokes and far-too-broad physical humor.

The things it's parodying -- Beatles and Bond movies and all those secret-agent TV shows of the 60s -- were already so tongue in cheek that one needs to go a lot further than this movie goes to really amuse me.

Austin Powers feels more like the unfortunate amalgamation of a drawer full of short skits Myers has been holding on to since Saturday Night Live.

Austin Powers has plenty of originality to it, but a lot of the jokes either fall flat, or just don't give me the chuckles I expect.

As the ending credits went up, I realized that I had never laughed. A few smiles, but that was it.

Myers and director Jay Roach seem to have no sense of how long is too long to stick with an extended gag.

Tasteless and humorless!

Though there many hilarious moments, just as many miss the mark, some falling flat completely.

Even at its best, it's not very funny.

Mike Myers may be a connoisseur of the old spy-and-sex genre, but the result is less a screenplay than a manic quote machine.

Director Jay Roach seems helpless to rein in the addled antics of his star or to give the supporting cast much of a grip on what they're supposed to be doing.

The originals were spoofs in their own way, too, unless you really believe that secret agents look more like Sean Connery than Aldrich Ames.

The bad news is that it's a one-joke picture.

This shagadelic James Bond spoof isn't for kids.

Roger Moore
Winston-Salem Journal

The film's borrowings, from Casino Royale and especially the mod, mock spy show The Avengers, are consistently funny.

January 1, 2000

If this were the Simpsons, I would have been rolling on the floor; it's not a parody, it's a fish out of water comedy with a splash of homage. And that's why it doesn't work.
